-style socialism to the u.s. of a. well, back in 2008 focus on the family, a hard right christian group, sent a memo to supporters about what 2012 would look like if obama was elected. well, first a prediction about the boy scouts of america. here they are. the boy scouts no longer exist as an organization. they chose to disband rather than be forced to obey the supreme court decision that they would have to hire homosexual scoutmosters. no, actually, the boy scouts are still going stlong. next, the prediction on gun laws. it is illegal for private stens to own guns for self-defense in eight states and the number is growing with increasing democratic control of state legislatures and govships. wrong. again, the second amendment is still intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare t

in the u.s. stock market, the death rattle of the auto industry. he, barack obama, then brought a financial and economic collapse back from the brink, changed the course of the economy from job destruction to job creation, doubled the american stock market, saved the auto industry. he did it all with a dramatic change of policy, a stimulus program that varied 180 degrees from the austerity measures that have humbled europe. an intervention into the auto industry that reinvigorated an industry that means pride to americans. obama needs to make this defense, he needs to underline the fact that his opponent and his party fought him every inch of the way. on the stimulus, on the auto industry, on health care, on equal pay for women, and that it disagrees on fundamental ways on the future course of american economic policy. on health care, on medicare, on social security, on equal pay for women. he has got to both defend and also hold his opponent accountable for his and his party's obstructionism from the first day he took office. it's a tall order. one worthy of an american president
